Pop-punk kings Blink-182 have just released a new single called ‘Quarantine’, which, as the title suggests, is all about the band’s time spent in the current lockdown.

It’s the first material to come from the band since last year’s ‘Nine’ LP, and is also the lead single from a forthcoming yet-to-be-announced EP that the band have been discussing over the past few weeks.

Drummer Travis Barker had this to say of the track.

“The song was inspired by the quarantine and the crappy punk rock music we have loved to play since day one. All the drums are one take and I even sang some back up vocals. Mark [Hoppus, bass/vocals] sounds more pissed off then I’ve ever heard him and I really like it.”

Guitarist Matt Skiba, however, is not credited nor does he appear on the track, which is presumed to be due to him not having his own home recording studio unlike his bandmates.

You can stream and check out ‘Quarantine’ below.

More details surrounding the band’s forthcoming EP will be confirmed as it develops.
